Beautiful and feisty thief, Alex Farraday, (Olga Kurylenko) is recruited to pull one last diamond heist before she can leave the game forever. But when the deal goes wrong and Alex witnesses a brutal murder involving a corrupt senator, she must run for her life. Pursued by the ruthless and cold Mr. Washington (James Purefoy), Alex starts to uncover a tangle of lies which lead her to face the awful truth about why she was involved in the first place.
This travesty of a film takes all the tropes of a thriller and turns them into clichés. Bank heist, sassy girl gang leader, suave sadistic adversary, confusing rapid-edit fights, Morgan Freeman as a corrupt senator (who literally phones in his performance from a different country). Tick.
It’s not long before all that pointing of guns at each other starts to grate. You’ll not care a jot about any of it. Typical dialogue: ‘You’re really starting to piss me off’ and ‘I’m fed up playing your games’. People still write this sort of stuff?
